Valle de Bravo, México (May 18, 2018) – It was another stellar day for Thomas Bowen’s Reach Around at the J/70 North American Championship after posting a 2-3 today. With 10 races now complete, Bowen holds a dominating 25-point lead heading into the final two races of the regatta.

Bowen counts only scores in the top four of the 32-boat fleet, able to drop an eight, leaving him with 18 net points. Oivind Lorentzen’s Nine maintained the silver position with 43 points, ahead of third place Ander Belausteguigoitia’s Bandoola who has 55 points. Leading the Corinthian division is Hector Guzman Gonzalez’s Escipion.

Valle de Bravo delivered winds at a steady 10-14 knots and gusts to 17, with puffs and shifts keeping teams on their toes. Yon Belausteguigoitia’s Bullet lived up to its name in the opening contest, trailed by Bowen and Diego Berho’s BBB. Fernando Stephan Gutierrez snagged the next win, with Chris Snow’s Mexigenics and Bowen following.

Up to 12 races are scheduled for May 16 to 19.
